    Default Asshat shoots Bald Eagle

    The local news here in Erie announced that a McKean man shot and killed a Bald Eagle because he thought it was a threat to his barn cats. The PAGC officer that responded to the complaint said that it was the largest Bald Eagle that he had seen with an estimated wing span of 8 feet. State and federal charges are pending. The ignorance of some people is hard to believe at times.

    One thing is for sure, there is no shortage of stupid motherfuckers in Erie.
    Then we wonder why there is no growth and dwindling opportunity up here..maybe it 's the criminals who are city & county council and the special interest people who elect them.

    This is one time I hope the PGC nails someone's ass to the wall.

    Clearly the guy is a moron.

    That said, if the bird had been pureed by a windfarm, there would be no fuss, no crime, no reporting. Because green energy.

    I wonder if that is just the PGC charges or if that includes federal too?

    Here is what my Google Foo found...

    https://www.fws.gov/midwest/eagle/protect/laws.html

    The bald eagle will continue to be protected by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act even though it has been delisted under the Endangered Species Act. This law, originally passed in 1940, provides for the protection of the bald eagle and the golden eagle (as amended in 1962) by prohibiting the take, possession, sale, purchase, barter, offer to sell, purchase or barter, transport, export or import, of any bald or golden eagle, alive or dead, including any part, nest, or egg, unless allowed by permit Bald Eagle sitting in tree (16 U.S.C. 668(a); 50 CFR 22). "Take" includes pursue, shoot, shoot at, poison, wound, kill, capture, trap, collect, molest or disturb (16 U.S.C. 668c; 50 CFR 22.3). The 1972 amendments increased civil penalties for violating provisions of the Act to a maximum fine of $5,000 or one year imprisonment with $10,000 or not more than two years in prison for a second conviction. Felony convictions carry a maximum fine of $250,000 or two years of imprisonment. The fine doubles for an organization. Rewards are provided for information leading to arrest and conviction for violation of the Act.

    Good....Hold my beer and rack em up.
    The only thing you should feel when shoot your enemy, is the recoil.
    The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops
